ADSL Annex-M Support on WIC-1ADSL??

Answered Question

From what I understand to get Annex-M ADSL2 support on Cisco routers you need to get a hardware upgrade/replacement and IOS 12.4(11).


New versions of the 877 routers with a "-M" and a "HWIC-1ADSL-M" have been released for various other routers.


What I wish to know is if there is going to be any new WIC-1ADSL part with Annex M support (aka WIC-1ADSL-M).

Hi, I don't think there will be any evolution for the older WIC, because the higher rates require in fact the highest bus speed that only HWIC's have.


Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!

The 3700 support hwic-1adsl and "should" support the -m variant as well.

To be honest, I can't find a conclusive document that show the 3745 supporting hwic-1adsl, let alone the -m. So if you want annex m, the safest whay would be to order a router that embedded ot hwic, supports that offically.

Paolo,


That is really really my problem. Customer needs to know to deploy in about more than an hundred locations.


In 38xx i know that i can use HWIC ports, no problem. But and in 3700? argh, what a dillema!


Thanks!
